You assign a posting period variant (lets say 0001) to your company code in T Code OBY6. You then specify open periods for that posting period variant in T Code OB52.

Var. A From Acct To Acct From Per1 Year To Per Year From Per2 Year To Per Year

1 + 5 2009 5 2009 1 2009 16 2009

1 A ZZZZZZZZZZ 5 2009 5 2009 1 2009 16 2009

1 D ZZZZZZZZZZ 5 2009 5 2009 1 2009 16 2009

1 K ZZZZZZZZZZ 5 2009 5 2009 1 2009 16 2009

1 M ZZZZZZZZZZ 5 2009 5 2009 1 2009 16 2009

1 S ZZZZZZZZZZ 5 2009 5 2009 1 2009 16 2009

When you hit F1 on AuGr field in OB52, SAP gives a documentation on how to use the fields in OB52. For some reason it says you enter the periods open for all users in From Per.2 to To Per.2 and Year, and enter the periods you want to restrict to specfic users (with that Authorization Group) in From Per.1 to To Per.1. But I think it is the other way round. For example, if you want to keep period 5 open for all users and all periods in 2009 open for specific users, please see the above example. I know it shows up in a weird format, just copy and paste it in excel, you will see it in appropriate format.
